Is it time for a NEW YOU? Is it one of your New Year’s resolutions to lose weight while becoming healthier, and more fit.? Here’s a terrific solution – Join the TOTAL MAKEOVER CHALLENGE!!!
What is the Total Makeover Challenge?
It’s a program offered by a non-profit organization called Shape Your World Society (more about them later too).
This program takes women through an inner and outer Transformation Journey which encourages them to grow, evolve and be empowered. For example, there is nutritional coaching, fitness training, beauty tips, how to walk and talk with confidence, personal growth seminars that work on self-esteem, leadership skills and getting out of your comfort zone.
This is their 10th year and they are now in 4 cities, and changing hundreds of women’s lives.
Cities this year include Abbotsford, Langley, Chilliwack and Vancouver.
They are open for applications until January 17th at 10pm, and the program start January 21st.
As seen in the Huffington Post
“Women who lift women up are always needed. But, what I’m about to say may surprise you.
It’s not the women who appear to have it all together that will inspire you most.
It’s the ones that have been in the trenches like you. The ones that speak their truths, the truths we resonate with, while we let out a big sigh “We are not alone”. It’s the women who talk about the things that we’re not supposed to talk about. Those are the women waking up the world, one vulnerable share at a time, one shoulder at a time, one community at a time.
We see these stories in the media, and we see them all around us. Successful women rising up and showing others if they can do it, we all can!
The female experience can be divinely beautiful and bold. Women of all ages are creating, leading, living bravely.”

A word from Gwen Beukens (Winner of 2017)
When I think back to a year ago I was feeling frustrated and discouraged of my health and weight. I had tried to lose weight on my own over the years, but it was always a big struggle. Two years earlier I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer so I knew I needed to get healthier. My weight and health needed a major overhaul. I wanted to be a healthier mom and grandmother to my children and grandchildren.
When I saw the ad for the Total Makeover Challenge I was curious. That’s just what I needed, I thought. Once I was in the challenge, I decided to dedicate my whole effort fully into the challenge in order to get the full experience.
We started with 30 women. My initial goal was to make the top 15. When I did I was so happy I just kept going. I was seeing the changes in my body as time went on. The workout and healthy eating was paying off. When I made the top 5 I was ecstatic. By the time the fashion show rolled around I felt like a better version of me. Feeling good in my skin, my confidence, and my self esteem had grown leaps and bounds. I lost 42 pounds and 34.5 inches altogether. I was so surprised when I was announced winner for the Abbotsford Total Makeover Challenge.
It sometimes still feels like a dream. I have learned so much in the four months of the challenge. I’m so thankful for all the support I’ve received from my family, friends and to all the sponsors and board of the Shape your World Society. I also have decided to continue to support the Total Makeover Challenge by being the intern for the Chilliwack Total Makeover Challenge.

Who is Shape Your World Society?
Shape Your World Society (SYWS) is a Non-Profit Organization whose mission is to help women and their families.
Since its inception in January 17th, 2011, “Shape Your World Society” has helped hundreds of women do exactly what the name suggests (Grow, Evolve, Empower); providing women with the tools to take charge and wrestle back more control over their lives by looking and feeling better about themselves. This enables them to become better people and face the world and their families with greater hope and confidence.
The goal is to empower and restore emotional confidence in women. And to educate and inspire their development with the sum total of our knowledge, experience, expertise and resources.
The Shape Your World Society Board is run by a group of amazing women (volunteers, staff, past challengers and sponsors) who work tirelessly throughout the year to provide the TOTAL MAKEOVER CHALLENGE.
